The film begins with a shot of the Via di Villa Madama leading up to Villa Madama, where the Diplomatic Institute is located. Once inside the entrance the camera frames the Villa's façade and proceeds toward it up an evocative, tree-lined lane.
The camera lingers on the Casale di Villa Madame, which houses the Diplomatic Institute, followed by a panoramic shot of all the buildings and then of the broad main façade, from whose balcony hang the flags of Italy and the European Union.
We then enter the Casale di Villa Madama and proceed to the large conference room*. The camera then takes in the direction room and one of the antique Ambassador's uniforms on exhibition in the building. This is followed by views of the fireplace hall (rectangular table) and the meeting hall (horseshoe shaped table).
The tour then moves outside to the adjacent buildings containing the other halls where courses are held, and a lovely auditorium surrounded by gardens.
The tour concludes with a panoramic shot of the building's exterior.
